    The food and drinks were fantastic! Our server gave us complimentary chips and salsa when our drink order was delayed. However, the music was much too loud. There was a DJ-too much noise in a small space made it difficult for conversation.

    I don't know the name of our servers, but they were absolute sweethearts! They were dancing along with the music and happy to accommodate us in any way possible. Love them! Will come back just for the general ambiance and high energy of the place :)

    Reservations was overbooked. My reservation was following the hostess to our table when another costumer decided to call me “nasty” in front of everyone. When I mentioned I had a reservation, the other woman said she reserved the specific area. I was appalled when I the hostess quickly walked away instead of resolving the situation.

    Overall it was a good time! The only downside was the service... our server was nice, but was no where to be found most of the time and didn't bring us our drink order until we received the check to pay and leave, so we didn't really get to try the drinks which was unfortunate on Cinco de Mayo. The best part though was the ambiance - the venue was nicely decorated and they gave customers little things to take home which was great! I think if we had better service I would've given the place 5/5.

    This was our very first visit and we all had ourselves an amazing time! The food was quite delicious and the drinks did not disappoint!! The service was top notch, from entrance to exit we felt genuinely taken cared of through and through. Thank you so much for making this such a memorable taco Tuesday girls night!

    Came in with some friends. We were a bit early and waited for our friends to get there. Once everyone was there it took awhile before the came over to take out order. Once all the food came out, one person didn’t get their food. Come to find out he never place the order. The cover up was to double the order to make up for it. It was still a good time, but some tweaks need to be made.

    The service was great but the food was just okay. Carnitas should have flavor and my dish had none. Restaurant was empty for brunch which is surprising but maybe because it was Easter.

    This my second time visiting Ghost Pepper Tacos. My first experience was awesome, the food and the drinks were great as well as the service. This time the experience was the opposite. We had to wait over 30 minutes to order our drinks. I ordered a Moscow mule and they used a regular 10 onz glass instead the traditional mule cup. The appetizers and the main enteres came in together. The whole experience was disappointing.

    I am about to sound like an old lady (I am 30). It was too loud, and we couldn't hear one another. We loved the food and the aesthetic however I came with my elderly parents and friends for my birthday and the lack of availability for tables that were not high tops was an issue. The food, staff and margaritas were wonderful!

    I mixed it with my taco order: fish, chicharrón and carnitas. My favorite was the fish taco, but the other ones didn’t disappoint either.

    Ate there during busy hours on a Saturday night. We had asked for water and silverware, as we were a party of 3 and there were only 2 plates and 1 set of silverware at the table. We got our cocktails (one was wrong), and then our apps came out. At that time we still hadn’t received any water and asked again for silverware and plates. Then once we were brought everything, including the water, we had no glasses for the water. Once the water glasses came, one of them had a lipstick stain on it and we couldn’t use it. We ordered a few different tacos. One person in my party didn’t receive a taco she ordered, and by the time the waitress came back everyone was done eating. It looked like there was only one waiter/waitress for the entire restaurant and she was running around! The food and atmosphere were very pleasing. This is the second time I’ve been here and the first time was a great experience, which is why this time was slightly disappointing.

    One waiter on a Sunday! Waited 1 hour and 45 minutes for food and ended up having to leave! Server was amazing I felt horrible for her as she was the one carrying the whole restaurant while the manager was sitting at the host stand eating a burrito with no care in the world. Spoke to her and didn’t even get a sorry! Will not come back!

    Sub average experience. Ordered a prosecco based cocktail, it was room temperature. No high chairs for kids despite 2/3 occupied tables including us had kids at the brunch. Food was good, warm, and perfect quantity. Contrary to the name, the server had 0 knowledge of the hot sauces or what they carried.

    I went here on a whim for an outing with friends. I booked a reservation for 3 for 9:30, we got there about 10 min earlier and the place was packed!! there was only 1 table available which was right by the door and we did not want it due to the draft but the staff was really accommodating in getting us seated as soon as a booth was open. The food was phenomenal and the drinks were great. Definitely will be recommending this place and returning myself.
